Dairy Farming Values

Did you know the first cows in the western hemisphere arrived with Christopher Columbus on his second voyage in 1493? Just like me, my cows have European ancestry. I have been dairy farming for over 30 years, and in banking for almost 15 years as a Lender at Baylake Bank. Farming and banking have changed a lot over this timeframe due in part to changing regulations, but also due to better practices in general. The U.S. dairy farmer has adopted new technologies and practices to become the most efficient business model in the history of the United States. In 1945 there were 26 million cows in the U.S producing around 3,850 pounds of milk per cow per year totaling 100 billion pounds. Today there are only 9 million cows producing over 22,000 pounds of milk per cow per year totaling over 200 billion pounds. That’s twice as much milk out of one third as many cows, thus reducing feed resources, water intake and manure. more
